Wastewater Treatment in the Food Industry

Companies in the food industry need large amounts of water – as an ingredient of their products, but also – in large amounts – for the production process and for the cleaning of raw materials, machines and equipment. Water cleans, washes and is processed. Using this essential resource carefully helps to reduce costs. The biological wastewater treatment process by DAS Environmental Expert enables companies to recycle usage water and therefore lower overall consumption.

Wastewater Treatment in Diverse Industry Branches

Many companies in the food industry accrue wastewaters highly contaminated with organic substances. By lowering the organic load, DAS technology helps food producers to reduce sewage charges. The modular, efficient and robust DAS systems are not only suitable for large industry facilities, but also for applications in small-scale and micro enterprises such as dairies, potato and meat processing companies. DAS Environmental Expert provides everything from one single source—from consultation and the development of wastewater management concepts to the construction and commission of comprehensive measuring and automation technology.

Food industry, convenience food

Year of Constructioni2006

In addition to traditional ready-made products from poultry and meat processing, Fredag AG offers soy products, vegetarian dishes and seafood. When developing the wastewater treatment concept handling the very limited available space and the high fat load of the wastewater were paramount.

A TFR bioreactor for biological wastewater treatment meets the customer’s degradation requirements within the smallest possible footprint. And in order to even further reduce special needs, the peripheral aggregates were placed one on top of the other, so the entire system needed almost no extra space.
